Pulp Non-Fiction

Let’s talk about Dick Dale. How can you not respect a cranky old bastard that has lived through rectal cancer. Twice. 72 years old and still putting together a rocking act. The guy has been innovative in both his style of play and his equipment. He’s thought to be the first American rock guitarist to incorporate non-Western scales into his music (think Misirlou) and was the first guitarist to employ a 100 watt amplifier. When this guy kicks it, there will be no successor to the title “king of the surf guitar”; there is no other.

Here he is at a much younger 70 years old, playing with G. E. Smith (a guy that seems to get all the best gigs).

Sonisphere to hand out USB wristbands this weekend

I don’t know if the wristband is free or not, and I don’t care to research simply because I’m bitter about tours like this never coming to a city near me. Anyway, Sonisphere is offering up a USB wristband full of videos, and audio for this weekend’s epic two day festival. Check the flyer below to see who is playing.

I didn’t know Buckcherry and Alien Ant Farm were still relevant. I also didn’t know Mastodon was still being disrespected like this.

Megadeth’s endgame Album Art

Endgame-500x500

I would have prefered the band standing in front of a “hot rod,” no homo. Endgame will be released September 15th.
